This week,The Campaign for Wool and its patron, HRH the Prince of Wales, are celebrating its 8th annual Wool Week in the UK. Wool Week celebrates the beauty and functionality of wool by hosting various events which educate, inspire and promote the benefits of wool.
While we are not in the UK ourselves this week, we thought we'd share some education and inspiration from our own southern corner of the world about where our merino wool comes from and what makes it so special.
Our Roots & Wings Merino business is built on trust: We trust nature to provide us with the purest quality merino and we know that you trust us to select the most ethical option during each step of our sourcing and manufacturing process.
Children are more susceptible to cold for a simple reason: Their smaller bodies lose heat rapidly. Another less scientific reason is that they usually don't agree with all the layers that come with protecting them from the cold, rain or heat. And while we all want our children to roam free and enjoy all the beautiful things that the great outdoors has to offer, the question begs: How do we dress them for any weather?
Our organic merino is a scarce and sought-after resource, found only on happy, soft-as-a-cloud sheep. In this blog, we tell you more about the process we follow from farm to fashion, keeping it as sustainable and natural as possible.
